    ^^ I didn't even know they made it for Windows. Apparently, they stopped several years ago.

    Yep Opera for me too for about the last 3-4 years - hate Safari with a passion and Chrome seemed to just suck in malware with every click.

    The thing I like about Firefox is they still have the feature where you can cascade your bookmarks/favorites down the left side. It's essential for my morning comics read.

    Kah-ROAM! IE when necessary. Never, ever Edge.

    You should be able to burn a DVD with Windows File Explorer, but to play it back you'll need a 3rd party program like VLC, as markwoll mentioned.

    I looked at that yesterday, and got the songs loaded into the window, and then couldn't figure out how to burn them or where the burn button was. I right clicked the mouse and saw it said: burn. But it sent everything to the Windows Media Player. So any tips. At any rate, yes, I've got the VLC too, and works good. I

    I think what happened is when Microsoft did its upgrade, it jimmied up WMP, at least I've read where others were having similar problems.

I wished I had stayed with Dell as you can tell slight differences in quality. For example the DVD burner in the Acer feel more like a laptop burner--not a huge deal breaker, but worth noting.

    Curious to know what brand computer you're using as well. Thanks. Just curious.

    Yup, Zilla/Fox at home (it's got my trust) and IE at work (it's more or less encouraged by our ICT)

    I hate that because it corrects my french into english... too stupid to realize that I'm not writing english.

    I used to flee µsoft in the early 00's whenever I could and favoured Google, but nowadays, the awful bad guys are the latter, so I'd prefer trusting back the former.

    Chrome and on rare occasions, Edge, when necessary. I've read about a number of alternatives, but haven't used any. I haven't used IE for years.
    I have a Dell that's less than three years old, with 10 on it, of course. Works.
